are not supposed
to paralyze you,
they're supposed to
help you discover
who you are."
--- Bernice J.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley
last night hinted that the Govern-
ment may have to cut some jobs in
the public service.
Ingrid Sirju: So many people
have already lost their jobs and it's
happening everyday, it's just that we
are not hearing about it. Everything
is going up, the price of food is as-
tounding. With no jobs and people
not being able to buy food the only
thing we are going to get more of is
Lee-Anna Moore: Hmmmmm,
more hardship on the people, things
are getting worse.
Tanya T Perez-Kirby: Focus on
reducing cost of living (food prices,
rent) stop rehiring retired persons on
contract with hefty salaries, reduce
the cabinet (2 & 3 minsters in one
ministry), stop the costly contract to
transport prisoners---just to name a
few. There are many areas that can
be addressed before reaching to this.
There must be logical thinking with
Venessa Chandrika Jalim: What
more he want from the people?
Michael Pereira: This may be
good. Let's work towards efficiency.
Everyone complains when they see
too many WASA or Cepep workers
sitting around but you don't want to
Shinelle Martin: Not a good idea.
Dennis Ramrattan: Let the man
do what he has to do, the people love
Allan Ramroop: Cutting jobs and
raising taxes how this gov want the
country to get better?
Vido Ramkhalawan: We voted
for that. Let's not complain now.
Donna Ann Williams: Ok, so how
can we send home some government
Mickey Sirjoo: What people will
do, they have to eat? This country
gone through; time to fly out. Hope
we ain't get charged for talking.
Rosheena Mohammed: Well ppl
wanted him as PM, hope they very
Clin Kiswah: Let's start with AG.
Then the head of the police depart-
ment. Here is where you begin sir.
Amrish Danrajh: When u fire
these people the economic pro-
duction and growth of this country
will fall and now how he expect the
country to raise in production for the
economy to be stable again?
No shortage of psychiatric
A day after psychiatric patient
Christopher Wolfe complained
that he could not get drugs at the
San Fernando outpatient phar-
macy, chief executive officer of
the South West Regional Health
Authority, Gail Miller-Meade, as-
sured that there is no shortage of
Mahadeo Sookoo: One of these
days these people will tell us the sky
not blue and the world is not round
and expect us to believe that.
Rebekah Watson: Grande has
drugs am sure of that.
Melina Hutchinson: Like this
man already tripping off because the
drugs are available!
Frances Lopez: I personally know
of someone who has been going
without certain meds for almost two
months now. Always told come back
Woman found dead
Rumours of drugs and mental
problems surround the death of
23-year-old Kelly Ann Clarke,
whose nude body was found in
Point Fortin yesterday afternoon.
Vashti Ganpat: Regardless of
her mental state and/or alleged drug
problem, that's no way to die. Find
her killer(s) and bring them to justice!
RIP young lady.
Gillian Walters: Please stop di-
minishing her death, there is a family
in mourning and a killer walking
around free. He may be your neigh-
bour, your friend, the nice person that
does your repairs at home. Oh, maybe
you jumping in his taxi later.
Vena Cozier: No matter if a per-
son is mad on d streets it gives no one
the right to kill her. Rip. Whatever
she was that's no way to die, its a life.
Hate when ppl talk negative.
Tom Tom: Father, put ah hand,
foot or maybe yuh whole body be-
cause evil taking over. No one has love
for any one any more, it really sad.
Ingrid Nicholls: Is there any ev-
idence of drug overdose or suicide in
her autopsy report? Steups
ok to sue Rowley
Former deputy permanent
representative to the United Na-
tions (UN) Eden Charles has been
granted permission to pursue a
lawsuit against Prime Minister Dr
Keith Rowley and members of his
Cabinet over a decision to revoke
Jacqueline Benjamin: Isn't it
standard that when a new govern-
ment comes in ambassadors resign
their posts and return to the country?
Isn't that what was done under Kam-
la? So the person he replaced could
have sued Kamla also. Wow, so Mr
Charles think he is special. That is
even the procedure with the United
States of America ambassadors.
John Gorgan: The new govern-
ment can bring in whoever they like
as ambassador or diplomats. It is not
"standard for the ambassadors or dip-
lomats to retire" but it's expected that
the ambassadors would be relieved of
their positions and others would be
put in who would better "serve" the
newer government agenda and ideol-
ogies. There's no need to have a face
to face meeting but a simple letter can
serve as a firing. If he decides to file a
suit, no problem. All the judge has to
do is make sure that the suit has all the
check marks to be filed, that doesn't
mean the judge has to agree that a suit
should be filed. Just saying.
Michele Sayers: This is the height
of dotishness...yuh will end up paying
